Abstract

The five plants from each progeny of biparental (BIP) of a cross PSB-1 x KT-9 were selected for bud and mix pollination (BP & MP) to produce bud and mix pollinated seeds of BIP’s. The materials thus, developed were evaluated in compact family block design with three replications for horticultural and quality traits. BIP 2-9-BP, BIP 7-35-BP, BIP 14-45-BP, BIP 3-11-BP, BIP 7-33-BP and BIP 2-2-MP, BIP 2-6-MP, BIP2-4-MP, BIP 15-56-MP and BIP 2-10-MP possessed good yield and quality traits. PCV and GCV were low for all the traits except gross curd weight and net curd weight. These characters also exhibited high heritability and genetic advance as percentage of mean indicating the additive gene effects for these traits. The high heritability with low genetic advance was found for stalk length and days to harvesting. Rest of the traits had low to moderate heritability with low genetic gain indicating the influence of environment.
